What Is The Difference Between Thai Red Curry and Thai Green Curry?
With the most outwardly obvious difference being the color, red curry is created by using dry red chilies for the base of its paste. Red chilies are typically spicier than green chilies, ultimately creating a much hotter dish. Green chilies are milder in flavor and are used as the base in the best Thai green curry paste, and can oftentimes even be thought of as somewhat sweet.
What Are The Health Benefits of Tofu?
Over the years, due to its high levels of isoflavones, tofu has been found to lower the risk of several age and lifestyle-related diseases including cardiovascular disease, both breast and prostate cancer, type 2 diabetes, osteoporosis, and more. Tofu is also considered to be a strong source of protein, and it contains all nine essential amino acids. It is a plant source of both calcium and iron and contains magnesium, copper, zinc, and vitamin B1.
Is Tofu Good For Weight Loss?
When trying to lose weight, a high-protein diet is imperative as protein helps in toning the muscles. Tofu is considered to be one of the highest sources of protein, especially for vegetarians making it a versatile choice. It is a wonderful option for weight loss as it is extremely low in both cholesterol and fat content. Tofu helps to reduce bad cholesterol levels and triglycerides and is also thought of as a preventative for helping to reduce the risk of stroke or other cardiovascular diseases.
What Are Healthy Alternatives to Tofu?
Seitan and tempeh are both healthy alternatives to tofu. Both substitutes are also considered high in protein and have textures that are comparable to meat when cooked. There are also many meat substitute products currently on the market that will make wonderful fill-ins for tofu and your vegetarian curry recipe.
